Manchester United now have a new record goalscorer.
Wayne Rooney surpassed Sir Bobby Charlton’s record with his 250th goal for the club, in a loss time equaliser against Stoke City on Saturday English Premier League encounter. A superb, sumptuous and well curled free-kick restored hope and the continuous run of form for Manchester United; 13 games without defeat.
United went behind through an unfortunate Juan Mata goal and although Rooney rescued a point but he was left with mixed feelings after his team missed an opportunity to capitalise on dropped points from others.
Meanwhile, rumours continue throughout the January transfer window, with Antoine Griezmann strongly linked.
Memphis Depay has finally completed his move to Lyon, ending a disappointing United career. United have a buy back clause on the Dutchman, who will hope to reignite his career in Ligue 1.
He joins Morgan Schneiderlin in a January exit, and Mourinho has not ruled out the prospect of another player joining them before the month is out. Ashley Young and Bastian Schweinsteiger have both been linked with moves away.
